Lowered price from €31.000 -> €27.950 Harrington Ltd in Howe outside Brighton was a company which was making bodies for many different vehicle makers, mostly for coaches but also for cars like Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Bugatti before WW II. In the sixties sport scars were converted by Harrington Ltd like Sunbeam Alpine and Triumph TR4. Four different models of Sunbeam Alpines were converted. They were called Harrington Alpine, Harrington Le Mans, Harrington Alpine Series C and Harrington Alpine Series D. The Harrington converted models of Sunbeam Alpines were sold by Rootes dealerships. The company went out of business early 1966. There is no club for just Harringtons but owners are welcome to any Sunbeam Alpine club. The Harrington Le Mans was introduced at Earls Court in October 1961. This was the model from Harrington Ltd. which was meant to be a large production, at least 1000 cars was the target. But in those days metal industries were not having their good days, strikes and lack of material were quite normal so also at Rootes factories. A production line was set up and in fourteen months 250 cars was made. Many were exported to USA and other European countries. The car has the

This very well presented Sunbeam Rapier Series III has come to us from one of our South Yorkshire based regular customers. 270 KKX is an ideal every day classic and over recent months has been in fairly regular use. This nicely aged and honest example is equipped with factory fitted overdrive on 3rd and 4th gear and appears to be factory standard. This lovely pillarless sports coupe was taken off the road in 2006 and in 2014/2015 was subject of some re-commissioning work and light restoration carried out by a Dewsbury based Sunbeam specialist and enthusiast. The car drives incredibly well with the strong fit engine holding excellent oil pressure and the overdrive kicking smoothly in third and fourth gear. The Sunbeam has passed the last two MOTS' with no advisories and is ready to jump in and drive. 270 KKX presents well with clean paintwork, bright chrome and the interior has beautifully aged and benefits from a new carpet set. Whilst its clear the car has had a good level of restoration work carried out, it does appear to be a very original, correct car that will suit the show scene or regular use.
Non original 302 ci V-8 that has been modified with programmable Edelbrock electronic fuel injection, Summit competition roller cam and MSD H.E.I. ignition, Hurst competition shifter on Mustang 4 speed transmission, 4 wheel disc brakes, Koni shocks and free flow tubular headers, locked rear axle along with Nitto 450x50 R15 tires mounted on progressive rims that bite to the road. From the research we have done, prior owners statement and the 382000372 VIN number, all indications show this to a 65-66 Tiger 1-A series of 1 of 2706 originally built with 164 hp 260 ci V-8. In its present state this car far exceeds the original version in both power and handling. The body is extremely solid with no rust or collision issues. The wooden dash panel with original padding is in excellent conditions. Seats and door panels are redone in correct style as is folding top. The chrome bumpers and trim appear original. Miles showing are 45,365 and believed correct. A stock 260 ci motor and some original parts can be included if next owner desires. A rare Carroll Shelby creation that is a step up from its hot factory production level. Not for the faint of heart. $42,900
There were only 536 Mk2 Sunbeam Tigers built in total, and officially there were no right hand drive home market cars available. However, 12 RHD examples were made : 2 press cars, 4 dealer demonstrator cars, and 6 Metropolitan Police Cars. The Mk2 was rather different from the 1st series of Tigers. Most importantly, it had the 289ci V8 engine as used in the AC Cobra, Ford GT40 and Mustang. The suspension and steering were improved, and it had an egg crate style grill. The example we are offering is one of these 6 ex-Metropolitan Police Cars. Delivered new on 08.06.1967 to the Police Force at Wembley, London, wearing the NYL558E registration. The Tiger was used as high speed pursuit car on the northern roads of Greater London. After two years and 64.488 miles, NYL was decommissioned on 17.10.1969 and sold at auction. The car had 4 owners since, and a complete rebuild in 1986. It is still in fantastic condition and incredibly well documented. Even the original Rootes owners handbook and Roadcraft Police Drivers Manual are still with the car. MOT's are going back as far as 1979, and many period pictures and a photographic record of the rebuild are also in the documentation file. The c

1967 Sunbeam Tiger Mark II s/n B382100220LRXFE, engine no. 2012A11KK Forest Green with Black Interior Employing a similar formula to the AC Cobra, the Sunbeam Tiger represents the quintessential British sports car with a twist. Using the modified chassis and body of the four-cylinder Sunbeam Alpine combined with Ford's venerable small-block V8, the prototype of the Tiger was constructed by Shelby at Sunbeam's request. The resulting car was put into production, which was handled by Jensen, and just over 7000 examples were constructed between 1964 and 1967. The Tiger was manufactured in three series, Mk. I, Mk. IA, and the most advanced and powerful of the production run, the Mk. II, which were originally equipped with 289 cid Ford power plants. Of the total production, just 536 were true Mk. IIs. This particular car is a genuine Mark II, the 120th example built. It is an original 289 cubic inch car, a left hand drive roadster specification car with non-standard specification, per the decoded VIN. It was sold new to John C. Whisenhunt of Houston, Texas, and he retained the car until 1975. Its next owner, also of Houston, was Dale Painter, and he retained the car for 26 years until 20
